She's been hearing people compare her voice to Linda Ronstadt's for years, but it's only been in the last few years that singer-songwriter Brittany Kingery has become familiar with the singer's great body of work.

Linda Opens Up About Parkinsons <--click for more

Legendary singer Linda Ronstadt made a rare public appearance in the South Bay. Three years have passed since Ronstadt went public with her Parkinson's diagnosis. Monday night, she gave an update on how she's dealing with the disease to a sold out crowd at the California Theater in San Jose.

"Thank you for showing up to hear me talk instead of sing -- I never know if you are going to show up to hear me speak," said Ronstadt.

It was a trip down memory lane. With a singing career spanning decades, Ronstadt cranked out 31 gold and platinum records and won 10 Grammys. In the 1970s she famously dated then Governor Jerry Brown and later George Lucas. And oh the artists she worked with: the evening was a session of name dropping The Eagles, The Doors, James Taylor, Jackson Browne. Ronstadt smiled fondly as the musical hits played and then she got serious about almost 10 years of coping with Parkinson's disease.

Linda Ronstadt remembers Glenn Frey <--click for more

No one ever suggested that the Eagles invented country-rock music. The seeds for that hybrid had been planted and nurtured in the mid-1960s by the likes of the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, the Flying Burrito Brothers, Linda Ronstadt and the Monkees' Michael Nesmith well before Glenn Frey came together with Don Henley, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner in the early '70s.

For all that's compelling and gratifying about this 15-song display of Ronstadt's artistry, the cruel fact is, because of Parkinson's Disease, she'll never perform again, a loss that many, myself included, can't wrap our heads around. But she could wrap her whole voice around you and her fellow harmonizers, elevating the silk and rawhide of Irving Berlin and Hank Williams, Warren Zevon and the McGarrigles, to a place in your consciousness few could attain. Or sustain for that matter.

Dolly Parton Says a New Trio Album Is in the Works <--click for more

It's been 28 years since Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris released their Grammy-winning Trio record, but Parton says that a new collection of tunes from the three singers will soon be available.

"We've been trying for years to put out the thing that we had in the can and repackage the things that we did," Parton tells CMT. "Emmylou has been working at this for a long time. We thought it was coming out two to three years ago -- actually even before that -- but I just got a note from Emmy and Linda saying that they had signed off on it, and so it is gonna happen. I don't have a date, but it's supposed to be coming out this year."
